The cooler temperatures this winter may have put a chill on snorkeling and other water sports, but the time is right for land-based Key West tours of the city.
Online PR News – 25-March-2010 – – Key West, FL -- This winter has seen record bone-chilling temperatures that made a day of snorkeling feel like hard work, unless you had a nice warm wetsuit. But on land, cooler temperatures combined with the usually sunny skies set the scene for the perfect activity: a Key West tour of the city. While the main attraction for many visitors to the Southernmost City will always be the living coral reef just six miles from shore, the city of Key West has a fascinating history, unique architecture and a vibrant local culture, which can all be explored via a tour of the city. Whether by trolley, conch train, or by foot, the cooler temperatures are ideal conditions for exploring the streets of Key West.
And hundreds of visitors to Key West agree! Key West tours have seen a rise in popularity this winter, as guests take advantage of brisk weather to explore the narrow streets and historic spots in comfort. This is perhaps truest of all with Key West walking tours.
